wiws // bump-date and my favorite daily lipwear

Again. How do you post after you've had so much crazy?! Or at least as much crazy as this easy-going, slow, phlegmatic can manage in one summer!

Thanks be to God, our youngest is free of that parasite that plagued him for more than half of our summer. Relief and gratitude can't even begin to describe this mama's feelings in the least! But, here we are! Ready to roll into a Catholic Pre-k homeschool hybrid year, keep on keeping on with a growing two year-old who is quite the budding artist, and my ever expanding waist line that is filled with the wonderful bebe tres. 

Speaking of the littlest one, here's a little bump update along with a What I Wore Sunday for my own keepsake and for some link-up fun!
Dress: My Mom bought it for me from Macy's. She's found some great stuff there!
Belt: Belongs to another dress and since this one came without (the actual one wasn't on when purchased, hence sale rack win!)
Glasses: Parade
Bump: 18.5 weeks
Earings: James Avery
Necklace: James Avery again because I heart them!

Lipstick: My current FAVORITE nude! NARS: Satin Lip Pencil - Rikugien

Do you spy the lipstick? Probably not because being the non-selfie loving person that I am, I'm pretty sure the lipstick had already mostly worn off after asking my husband to take yet another shot that doesn't make me look like a blimp nor like I'm 4 feet tall (Goodness, I'm 5'6", love!) or like the complete goober that I am. Ah well! Trust me when I say it's a lovely daily lip color!
And then there's my favorite new photo-bomber. It's his new thing. Bombing photos. All the photos!
It's pretty sweet really and pretty funny when he does it. Gotta love that little face and that big heart!

Short and sweet for today because it's what I've got. I'm slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things and have doing a little updating here and there of the blog face and Facebook page to help me still feel connected to my little space which I do miss!

Hope y'all hang around! Those who have hung around whether it be on Facebook or Instagram and have been praying for our family (especially our little Linus), THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU...There really aren't enough thank yous in the world! This last month and a half has had some terrifying downs and I couldn't be more thankful to see the up right now! So much love and gratitude for y'all. Seriously!

Okay. I'm done with my little bit of mushy mixed with heart eyes and hugs. Head over to Fine Linen and Purple to see what others wore on Sunday.


  1. Aww I'm glad you all are feeling better. I missed your posts and now I must go get that lipstick. Rest up and keep rocking that dress, you look amazing :)

    1. Becca! Thank you!!! You've been so amazing throughout this time! I so appreciate your presence and prayers! And YES to the lipstick!

  2. You look so beautiful and I am so so so glad to hear things are getting better!

    1. Thanks, Mary! I'm so glad too! Golly! So so so so so glad! Now we're just focused on healing his little gut. Poor bub. Maybe now that things are getting better I'll be able to engage more on my little space more? Pray so! I miss it!!!!!

    1. Thanks, Ann-Marie! It's one of my fave dresses! And it's equally awesome when your mom finds something you like and fit in! Woohoo! Major wins for us there! :)

  4. You look amazing. I'm inspired to do a bump-post now...but we'll see if I get one done before this kid arrives!


Comment love makes me happy!
